ABOUT ME

Hi there! I’m Tani De Gregorio. The one behind this little blog. ‘Our big Dubai adventure’ started about three years ago when I quit my job in a multinational in Switzerland to follow my husband to sunny Dubai where we are living now with our two little munchkins, Luca (3) and Maëva (nearly 2).

This blog is not about the glamorous life of an expat wife. There’s just too many baby wipes and too few high heels in my life for that.

Instead, it’s about our daily adventures in the sandpit. About motherhood away from home. It’s about the kids. About fun things for them to do. Things you might not have heard of otherwise. It’s about workshops. And cool places to explore. In this amazing city we call home. At least for a little while…

Well now after being a mommy of 3 I prefer to do online shopping without having to search where my kids have got lost when I go shopping in malls. They are literally a handful and taking them out to shop need some 2 days of rigorous dos and donts whjch I have to feed in their little brain. But personally what I enjoy more is shopping directly from a mall with all the festivities around u.
Pls give me this mom of 3 this awesome reason tomake her kids smile,
Done all steps. Liked both pages.

I would go personally and do my shopping.Online shopping is great for routine items.
However,i would avoid shopping on weekends.Take time to do my shopping on weekdays.less crowd and i can do some quick shopping

I love this festive season, as its all about sharing and giving. Adding to it is the extensive shopping for self, family and friends. I love shopping online as well as heading to a mall. Both malls and online stores have so much to offer with crazy discounts and fabulous offers through out the season. December is indeed a fun month????

I prefer going to one shop with my list, and get everything done! Online shopping can have its disappointments so I would avoid if time-bound.

A mix for me . But the most important is that I choose presents from small business and hand maid gifts . I adore this kind of things and I know that for sure they will be a source of happiness for my family and friends. For my kids I bought some toys from toys box and from an other brand how sell wooden toys in a community market and some hand maid clothes, some books in a mall , and via Web we adopt for each one an orpheline elephant in kenya from a fondation how helps to protect… Read more »

Gah! Shopping with a tot is so stressful! I’m doing several main pressies that don’t require physical buying / wrapping (spa day for sister, photo shoot for parents…) As for the tot, it’s a stealth process of hiding his gifts in the shopping cart so he doesn’t find them! X

A bit of a mix for me, some mall shopping, some online shopping for products not available in the UAE and some buying directly from local crafters or small businesses. Mostly buying just for the kids though as adult family members have decided we will do a charity contribution instead of gifts.

I prefer shopping online these days as I don’t find everything I need in a mall. And being pregnant makes it tiring shopping at malls. I’m not particular about shopping from well known brands alone, I do love to try products from new local businesses as well.

I’m not much of an online shopper; instead I’m always on the lookout for sales at malls and tend to achieve most of my shopping then!

A mix of mall and online shopping for us. I do prefer mall shopping though because I want to see and touch items to make sure it suits the receiver.

I tend to start my Christmas shopping at the start of December. And it’s usually a mixture of visiting the malls and some online purchases too. The convenience of online shopping is very admirable however; it’s lovely to take in all the festivities and decorations in the malls at this festive period too. After all when it’s so warm outside its difficult to truly capture the spirit of Christmas without a little time and effort!
